Manjusri, the Founder deity of Nepal is a pre-brahminic Nepalese god, with one exception; in the Isle of Bali Manjusri is worshipped as the single embodiment of Hindu trinity gods, i.e., Brahma, Bisnu and Mahes. Also worshipped in the Isle of Bali are the Nepalese Buddhist gods, Pancha Dhyani Buddhas, the Five Buddhas of Eternal Meditation yet Manjusri and the Dhyani Buddhas are unknown in the brahminic India. Brahmins are not aware that the Enlightened One came to Kathmandu on a pilgrimage to Swayambhunath Temple to offer worship to Adi Buddha when Jite Dasty was the reigning monarch of Kiratdom. Ashok the Great, following his Masters footsteps had arrived in Kathmandu three centuries later. Through the inscription on the Lumbini Stone Pillar it is possible to accurately date Ashoks visit to Kathmandu in 243 B.C. during the reign of Sthunko. This book therefore, introduces for the first time, the history of Nepal seen through the eyes of indigenous Kirati Mongolians free from brahminic interjection and that is why you want to read it.
